Skindeep medi-spas are excited to introduce PlaCo!
PlaCo Plasma Cosmetic is an amazing new alternative to Eyelid Lift surgery, PlaCo Plasma Cosmetic treatment is a non-invasive treatment that shrinks excess skin, bags and wrinkles! PlaCo uses a new ‘plasma technology’. It works by using a tiny plasma arc to stimulate an instant contraction and tightening of the skin fibres. (Sometimes called a Fibroblast treatment). This is a fantastic anti-ageing solution for those who do not want to go under the knife and are looking for a different solution that is also more affordable.
The small plasma flash issued from the machine hand piece, in addition to its evaporation effect, simultaneously exerts a corrective, tissue-tightening, which ensures rapid and scar-less healing. there is no heat to surrounding tissue. The elasticity of the skin is improved and tightening is made possible. There is no damage to the skin, no open wounds and the healing time is low. There is no general anaesthetic, no cutting or stitching and very little down time.

How does the PlaCo Eyelift Treatment work?
The PlaCo machine conductor tip creates a tiny plasma flash from the tip (similar to a tiny lightening bolt). The tip does not touch the skin. The plasma lightning jumps from the tip to the skin and evaporates, leaving a very small superficial brown carbon spots that look like freckles. There is no heat to the surrounding skin. These small spots draw the skin together in their direct environment and shrink the excess skin. We follow a specific pattern to set the points to look like a grid (a reduction grid).
This is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that shrinks excess skin, bags and wrinkles!
This treatment protocol is also used for other areas of the face/body.
Do you need a consultation?
Yes. Anyone interested in a PlaCo Plasma Cosmetic treatment is required to have a consultation. Your practitioner will assess and suggest a treatment plan for you. Every client is different and the way the skin ages varies for each individual; the treatment needs to be planned according to the needs of each client. Some clients may need more than one treatment to achieve the desired result. We like our clients to be fully informed and to meet their expectations.
How long does the treatment take?
We allow 90 minutes including time for the anaesthetic to work and consent forms to be completed. You will be informed of where to purchase anaesthetic cream that can be administered during your treatment.
When will I see results?
Results can usually be seen immediately, full result should be visible after 2-4 weeks however the treated area will continue to improve for 2-3 months. Results are expected to last 2-3 years, the treatment can be repeated.
How many treatments will I need?
One treatment is often enough depending on skin type, severity of wrinkles and client’s expectation. For some a 2nd or even 3rd treatment may be required to achieve the desired outcome, follow up treatments can be carried after 8-12 weeks.
What after effects can be expected?
PlaCo Plasma Cosmetic treatments are very safe, on rare occasions, there have been reports of hypersensitivity or allergic reactions to the local anaesthetic, wound healing problems, skin infections, scarring, slight swelling, redness, tingling, the occurrence of herpes simplex (cold sore) and skin depigmentation (whitening).
Immediately after the procedure, the treated area will be quite red and mildly swollen. This can last from 1-3 days. The small carbon dots will dry to become small crusts. These crusts must not under any circumstances be picked or scratched off, they must be left to fall off on their own which can take anything from 5-14 days. These dots can be covered with a mineral foundation or mineral concealer.
Once the crusts have fallen off it is imperative that you use the PlaCo PeptideHealing Serum and use an SPF 50 sunscreen.
Absolutely no sun on the area without protection for 3 months.
How does the PlaCo Eyelid lift treatment work?
The PlaCo machine tip produces a tiny plasma flash (similar to a mini lightening bolt). The tip does not touch the skin. The plasma lightning jumps from the tip to the skin and causes tiny superficial sized brown carbon spots
that look like freckles.
We follow a specific pattern and set the points to form a grid called a reduction grid. The amount of dots and their placement draw the skin together shrinking the excess skin.
Are PlaCo Cosmetic Treatments safe?
Yes most definitely. It is state-of-the-art technology, our machine is made in Germany and of the highest quality, It is certified by European CE. This means it meets high safety, health and environmental protection requirements.
How long will the PlaCo results last?
Typically around 2-5 years, but is subject to the number of treatments you may require, your lifestyle and how you personally age. You will continue to age and your skin will continue to relax as part of the normal ageing process, and eventually you may see problems such as wrinkles and saggy skin re-appear However the PlaCo Plasma Cosmetic treatment can simply be repeated again.
